Metabolic Disorder Treatments

 

Cornerstone Wellness Center offers metabolic disorder treatments. By definition, metabolism is the breaking down of food into its basic components of proteins, fats, vitamins, minerals and carbohydrates (sugars).

At a cellular level, metabolism involves the processing and use of these basic nutrients so our bodies stay energized and alive. A metabolic disorder occurs when these normal processes become disrupted. It is a type of hormonal disorder. While many metabolic disorders are caused by genetics, they also develop during a person’s lifetime. For instance, Type II diabetes falls into that category, and it affects roughly 26 million Americans, according to the U.S. A. Center for Disease Control.
